Gloc 9 joins one of our biggest Campus Caravans!
With the help of Olivarez College’s SSG, we were able to successfully pull off one of our biggest Campus Caravan in history. According to some of the students that we interviewed, they barely have no events that encourage students who already love writing songs to actually pursue the craft. They hope that this event will be the bridge for songwriter students to build a community inside the campus.

Gloc-9 gave a crowd-energizing performance of “Hoy!” to open the #FILSCAPCampusCaravan. ???

“Nung bata ako, meron akong naging kapitbahay. Mahilig siya magmakeup at magmini skirt tapos nagtratrabaho sa parlor. Yung ibang tao pinagtatawanan siya pero ang di nila makita ay sa likod ng makeup na yun ay isang tao na nagtratrabaho ng marangal para mabuhay ang kaniyang pamilya.”
